Scripts and Videos in the Library
Usually, finding a play is easy! Follow these steps:

- Limit the format to Books (for scripts) or Videos.

Occasionally, plays are harder to find. If you can't find a particular script, it may be "hiding" in an anthology. Your friendly librarians know the tricks for finding these—just ask one of us and we'll be happy to help!
